When sitting idle, with Power Management Properties set;
Power Schemes = Always On
System Standby = Never
Turn off monitor = 1 hour
Turn off hard disk = Never
going back to the computer after a long period of inactivity, the screen is black and key and mouse movement will not get it working. Only option is to switch off.
Any ideas how to stop it going permanently to sleep?

You could have a look at the Video Card Manufacturers website update page to see if there is an update that references standby problems and update accordingly. Note if your video is on the motherboard then you will have to review the motherboards website for updates.

Most people when they encounter not awaking properly from Standby they disable the option in power management. So in your case it should require changing the monitor to always on then applying the change. Modern monitors on desktop computers use very little power and do not burn the screens as the older predecessors did.

If you are using Win2000 try turning off the Hibernate feature. It's in power options, Hibernate tab...
